Hysterectomy surgery tomorrow (1/14) any advice

Schedule for robotic surgery tomorrow. Due to 3 previous c-section may have to switch to open. Having complete hysterectomy for enlarged uterus, heavy periods, pelvic pain, etc. Had ER/PR + breast cancer 2015 so ovaries have to come out as well. Have extreme anxiety mostly about being intubated. Any advice or suggestions?

Everything will be fine. Deep breathes. Keep to a light diet today. When they reintroduce solids keep it very light like toast, tea and soup. Walk, walk, walk....as much as you possibly can. Good luck.

Any suggestions on specific foods for today? I also had horrible abdomen and shoulder pains from the gas they used during my c-sections. Any thing I can do proactively to help with that? I am an avid runner so the next few weeks are going to be very frustrating for me. I will walk as much and as fast as I can.

Re: Hysterectomy surgery tomorrow any advice

Hi there - I just wanted to let you know that I had a total hysterectomy (including my remaining ovary) on 12/28. I had multiple fibroids and a history of ovarian cancer in the family. I had a laparoscopic procedure with few scars and not very much pain. The beginning was a little rough because of hot flashes, but they've died down now. I'm three weeks post op and am beginning to feel so much better. It's so nice not to be dragged down by the fibroids. In any case, hope your procedure goes well. Good luck and get lots of rest.
